Comparative Billing Report on Noninvasive-Vascular Studies Released by CMS

In March 2016 the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) issued a provider Comparative Billing Report (CBR) on Noninvasive Vascular Studies. This CBR contains data and comparisons of billing and payment patterns by providers, as well as an explanation of findings. The CBR is intended to increase provider understanding of Medicare billing rules for providers alone and are not publicly available. The reports have been distributed using the fax numbers found on Provider Enrollment, Chain and Ownership System (PECOS) and so providers with up-to-date PECOS information should have received them. 

For more information, please visit the CBR Website.
